Trivia and Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • Archer tells Noah at one point that his "three-fifths of an opinion" is noted. This is a reference to slaves in America formerly being counted as three-fifths of a person for census purposes prior to the 13th and 14th amendments' ending of slavery and extension of rights.
  • The quote, "Missed it by that much" is a reference to Get Smart, whose protagonist, Maxwell Smart, said very often.
  • Archer and Noah's exchange prior to his fight to defend his pirate kingship echoes a similar conversation in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid:
    • Butch Cassidy: [in a low voice] Maybe there's a way to make a profit in this. Bet on Logan.
    • Sundance Kid: I would, but who'd bet on you?
  • When Cyril is looking at the ISIS Account Balance you'll notice there is a category for both "Food and Beverage" as well as "Additional Beverage."  This refers to the massive amounts of alcohol the staff drinks at ISIS.
  • The flight attendant on the chartered plane is the same one Archer spent the night with in the pilot episode.
  • Best (nearly?) racist line:
    • Bucky : We hold erection for king!
    • Sterling Archer: Well, that's flattering. It's not really necessary.
    • Noah: He means elections.
  • Callbacks
    • When Rip berates Archer for shooting the only radio on Pangu Island, Archer replies with, "all six, right in the ten ring." This is a reference to an identical line told by his mother in the season 1 finale, "Dial M for Mother".



Pam: "Ah, c'mon! Clock your skinny ass out already, and let's go get ourselves some drinks!
Cheryl: "Ugh! I can't. I have to cover her stupid phone in case some stupid pirates call with a stupid ransom demand for Mr. Stupid Archer!"
Malory: "Carol? Carol! Have they called?"
Cheryl: "NO... ma'am, but rest assured, I'll let you know the minute they do."
Malory: "Rest? My god, who can rest?"
Cheryl: "Not me, apparently."


Malory: "How can you even think about happy hour at a time like this?" (takes a drink) "When probably as we speak, my poor Sterling is being tortured by pirates?"
Cyril: "Heh-heh-heh, I wish."
Malory: "WHAT?!"
Cyril: "...wish you wouldn't say that."


Archer: "That was insane! I never even heard of that position. Did the missionaries not swing by here, or--?
Noah: "E-excuse me, Pirate King Archer?"
Archer: "Noah, what?
Noah: "Hi. Ready for the, uh, morning briefing?"
Archer: "Noah, I'm half drunk and slathered in... every bodily fluid there is. So, yeah, this as about as pirate-kingy as I'm gonna get. Brief away."


Noah: "Sir, pirates work for shares. And since you became a pirate king, there hasn't been any booty, so--"
Archer: "I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you there, buddy."
Noah: "From pirated ships."
Archer: "Oh, I thought you meant from all the-"
Noah: "Native girls, right, no."
Archer: "Sorry, I don't know all the pirate terms yet."
Noah: "Well, that's a common one."
Archer: "I'm new! To all of this, all right?"


Riley: "Archer! What a coincidence, I was just talkin' about ya."
Archer: "Yeah, with who? Because that buck-toothed little shit doesn't even speak English!"
Bucky: "I do little bit."
Archer: "No, you don't."
Bucky: "And correct syntax is 'with whom.'"


Lana: "I mean, am I jealous because Archer gets preferential treatment? Yes. But, HA! Am I still attracted to him? I mean, come on..."
Ray: "Is a pig's ass pork? I'm sorry, did you wanna hear what I think or just what you wanna hear? He asked, pretty sarcastically."


Bucky: "If you so strong, melawan raja!"
Archer: "What's melawan raja?"
Noah: "Oh, king fight! If the king loses to a challenger in one-on-one combat, he has to step down. Or-or just be dead."
Archer: "Since when?"
Noah: "Oh, since nineteen-always."


Malory: "Oh my... Carol! Somebody!
Cheryl: "What?"
Malory: "Sterling... I think... he's been shot!"
Cheryl: "Oh, my god... So can I go home?"


Noah: "Um, sorry, item one's actually the morale problem."
Archer: "NOAH!"
Riley: "More like potential mutiny."
Noah: "Yeah, right? Okay, I'm gonna go ahead and change 'morale problem' to 'potential mutiny'--"
Archer: "No, you're not! Because there is no mutiny, potential or otherwise."
Archer: "So, is that Malay for--?"
Noah: "Uh, 'mutiny', yes."
Archer: "Yeah, yeah."
Noah: "So I guess I should upgrade it from 'potential' to...?"
Riley: "'Incipient?'"
Noah: "Ooh, nice!"
Archer: "No! Do not upgrade that mutiny! Noah, I will tell you when it's time to upgrade the damn..."
(A grenade is hurled at their feet.)
Archer: "...mutiny. Okay, so, what comes after 'incipient'?"
Riley: "'In progress.'"
Noah: "Nailed it!"
(The grenade goes off.)


Archer: "Noah, where the hell does this (ladder) go?"
Noah: "I don't know, down?"
Archer: "Wow, you're only a doctoral candidate?"
Noah: "Hey, guy, my field's anthropology."
Riley: "Heh heh! Good luck with the job hunt."
Archer: "Right?"
Noah: "Not that it's any of your business, but I plan to teach."
Archer: "Anthropology?"
Noah: "Wha--? Yes!
Riley: "To anthropology majors?"
Noah: "Hey, you know what?"
Archer: "Thus completing the circle of 'Why bother?'"


Malory: "But I may as well go home and rest. If they haven't escaped already, Lana will be there any time now, and she'll get them out. And it's not like I can do anything from here."
Cheryl: "Exactly. So why do I have to stay?"
Malory: "Because Lana may call, or because I said so. Pick one!"
